Linkin Park, Meteora (2003) BY: Travis Scott Linkin Parkís success is baffling considering they defy the stereotypical mold of nu-metal due to the fact that their music is devoid of sex, violence, and vulgarity.

Phenomen (Jon Turteltaub, 1996) BY: Denis Haack This is one of those relatively rare films that begs to be viewed both as a window of insight into the culture in which we live, and as a point of contact with those who do not share our deepest convictions.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I donít much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
